The challenge of this task was to also ensureequity for learners by designing learning activities that can be completed with or without an iPad. A pilotimplementation of the learning design approach in a classroom setting was received favorably and this has led toplans for a formal study trialing a range of learning designs. In theory, the results indicate that iPads can be usedsuccessfully for engaging students in authentic digital creation activities related to the content they are studying. Inpractice, a sequential process for the development of these learning activities was needed for implementation. Afive-step approach for adapting traditional learning designs to include iPad activities is outlined.
